Following a morale-boosting 3-0 win over LASK in midweek, Tottenham Hotspur will look to continue their momentum when they travel to Turf Moor to face Burnley on Monday. The Lilywhites are in desperate need of a win after squandering a three-goal lead to draw with West Ham in the last league game, although the club’s excellent away form should be a promising sign for Jose Mourinho.
Predicted Tottenham Hotspur Lineup Vs Burnley
Jose Mourinho may once again have to make do without the services of Eric Dier, who remains out after suffering a hamstring injury during the international break.
Ben Davies had to operate at centre-back against LASK. But this time around, Toby Alderweireld should return to the side, forming the central defensive partnership alongside Davinson Sanchez.
Matt Doherty was excellent in midweek. But unfortunately, the Irishman may have to make way for Serge Aurier at right-back as Mourinho continues his rotation policy. The same thing applies to Joe Hart, with Hugo Lloris expected to return in goal.
Sergio Reguilon, however, could be one exception given the fact that Davies has already played in midweek. So the Spaniard is expected to continue at left-back.
Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg was hooked off in the second half against LASK. The Dane, having been one of Tottenham’s best players so far, is a guaranteed starter in midfield.
Harry Winks is making a strong case for retaining his place in the side, but could once again have to settle for the bench as Tanguy Ndombele and Moussa Sissoko look to continue their excellent partnership in the middle third of the pitch.
Mourinho, however, does also have the option of Giovani Lo Celso and Dele Alli, with one of them almost guaranteed to feature as a second-half substitute.
Harry Kane and Son Heung-Min are both expected to return to the side on Monday after being given a breather in the last game, though the latter did feature as a second-half sub.
These two have been in superb form so far this campaign, and it will be interesting to see whether or not they can maintain their excellent record in this fixture.
Steven Bergwijn is most likely to occupy the additional attacking role as new signing Gareth Bale clearly looked a bit out of pace in the last game. He needs some time to settle in while the likes of Erik Lamela, Carlos Vinicius and Lucas Moura hope to feature as substitutes against Burnley.
